“At Red Hat, we firmly believe in the strength of community-powered innovation. In early September, we were pleased to be recognized by Forbes, Inc. on its list of the world’s Most Innovative Companies. We are also proud that our customers who have built mission-critical systems on Red Hat technologies are also reflected on the Forbes list of innovative companies.”

“On a constant currency basis, subscription revenue grew 22% year-over-year while total revenue grew 20%. Our business model and offerings continue to appeal to customers despite the global economic malaise,” stated Charlie Peters, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Red Hat.

“This quarter marked a significant ramp-up in investments in our nascent storage business, with the launch in late June of Red Hat Storage Server 2.0. Furthermore, we announced two small technology acquisitions in the middleware space to further round out our offerings, which decreased the quarter’s EPS by approximately $0.01 per share due to one-time closing costs.”
